I have seen that this is a mixed opinion, many prefer the original circular radar from past GTA games, while others prefer the rectangular minimap from GTA V. So which one would you prefer for GTA VI?

I like both and don't have that much of a preference but if I had to choose, I'd go with the circular minimap for the next GTA

I liked the rectangle radar in 5. It's simple and beautiful. Also showed a lot more when you turn the camera around.

 

It would be nice to have an option to change to the classic radar as well.

Just so happens I made  what I'd like for it to look like.

Percentages back so stat boosting food/drugs can take your health/special percentage above 100%

 

Grey stamina ring to monitor stamina while running, climbing and rolling.

Circular 100%. It should also implement the stats system from RDR2.

I would enjoy a GTA game without any minimap. Add to the immersive experience, especially online.

Probably better to have one and add an option to turn off the minimap, that’s what most open world do these days.

I don't think online is possible without minimap. Otherwise there'd be a floating notifications everywhere on screen. Online has to cater to casuals.

RDR2 was perfectly playable (except some mission prompts where you have to go to a very specific place, that could've been solved with a small floating notification which isn't too intrusive) without minimap, it was a better way to play the game imo using the signposts, landmarks and of course the physical map Rockstar shipped with the game. 

 

I started replaying V without minimap and yeah, it's definitely a better game without the radar but the 'press D pad down once' to show the map for a few seconds was a fantastic idea in RDR2 which would've made V much better.

 

 

Does anyone know if there's a  floating notification mod which points mission objectives on screen or that RDR2 D pad like thing for GTAV?

Classic style circular map but I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to let you switch between circular and rectangular.

Made another HUD. Hybrid of GTAV's and RDR2. Cores are definitely the way forward.

I like the rectangular minimap visually, but also I do think they should make the game work if you disable it. Have obvious cues about where enemies are and if they're alive or not, gps instructions, etc

The rectangular radar was one of the few changes in V I actually liked. I think there's no issue with letting people pick a shape though. Why not design a handful of radars and let people switch between them? Let people use a pentagon or octagon radar for all I care.

No thanks to both. I would like a triangular minimap.

It doesn't do that much in terms of gameplay, but I prefer the aesthetics of the round radar/minimap and how the health and armour bars nicely wrap around like GTA IV.

I liked the semi-3D rectangular mode in vehicles. Very similar to GPS. I think it's better for navigation. My vote is circular while on foot and rectangular while in a vehicle. Though maybe the transition would be kinda annoying so if I had to choose one I still would go for rectangular. I kinda like it because it's different than all the minimaps devs use and I feel more comfortable while roaming around.

 

I also like my health bar to be a straight line. Not a curved one.

Nothing too colourful. Hopefully they take away special abilities because 1. they didn't suit a GTA game at all and 2. the yellow bar ruined the mini map. Would be cool if you could do on the fly changes to it like how you could change the size of it as well like in RDR2.

Thanks man. Before GTAV came out I was skeptical of a rectangular HUD but I love the way it looks.

 

Was moreso fonder of the original GTAV HUD than the borderless PS4/XB1 version though.

 

It's a small nitpick but It just looks weird having black lines going through the health, armour and special part but not the rest of the minimap lol

Circular. Got used to the rectangular one in the end though.

 

Just no top bar like skyrim or far cry 5

Circular, just like how they went back with RDR2. And with RDR2's choices, either none, a compass or something else. Maybe even allow to switch to rectangular.

No minimap when on foot. Square when in a vehicle.

Question:

 

Has anybody ever played with the minimap turned off right from the start? If so, how did it effect your game experience? Did it change anything?

Minimal minimap prototype

Gold: Main way point. Purple: Player-made way point White: Protagonist's interest (E.g. Restaurant if hungry but largely a random point of interest)

 

Individual way points fade in or out depending on the proximity of destination. Encourages players to actually make their own routes and learn the city, instead of being glued to the minimap.

Mini Map only appears when you enter a car, this would act as a sat nav/gps, maybe the “gps” could be upgraded at a garage to show a more detailed Mini Map
